Empire Ranch Cowboy Festival

Annually, on the first weekend in November, the Empire Ranch Foundation hosts its Cowboy Festival in Sonoita, Arizona. This public event celebrates Arizona’s Western history and culture. The Cowboy Festival celebrates 21 years in 2022. More than 3,000 visitors come to the ranch yearly for this rain-or-shine event. Guests enjoy history and culture demonstrations, ranch life exhibits, and activities for children, along with numerous skilled artisans and speakers Western heritage demonstrations, arena and livestock exhibits, cowboy cooking, and Western music and entertainment.

I worked with the Empire Ranch Foundation publicity contact, did additional research, wrote the article, added images, fact-checked the article, and published it on the NewsBreak and Herald Review NABUR websites.
